Further Information

The previous slides have been an abbreviated version of the WIA Literacy and Numeracy Measure.

We hope it helped define the WIA literacy and numeracy measure, identified basic skill requirements in reading and math that this measure tests, and explained how students will be measured as they increase their Educational Functioning Level (EFL) in reading and math.

For more information regarding the WIA Literacy and Numeracy Measure in Nebraska, click on this link.

Here are some acronyms to keep in mind while looking at the information sheet.

  • WIA: Workforce Investment Act
  • ETA: Employment Training Act
  • ABE: Adult Basic Education
  • EFL: Educational Functioning Level
  • BSD: Basic Skills Deficient
